Just got back from a weekend trip to San Diego and feeling rejuvenated and enriched after spending quality time with a best friend. Now that my life consists of most of my friends living in other cities, taking these short weekend trips to spend quality time with them in their cities is what it's all about.
We spent a rainy day in Balboa Park walking around the Japanese Tea Garden and the botanical garden (will further report on the botanical garden later) before heading to Coronado Island.
With the arctic blast that moved in this week, I decided to wear my great grandma's coat that I inherited. For obvious reasons, this coat is really special to me and it reminds me of the fact that clothing really is "timeless". I'm wearing something from someone who was born in the 1800s. It's really amazing that one piece of clothing can carry on through many generations. I wonder what experiences she had in this coat.
Another highlight: I had tea and scones and good conversation with Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary. Thanks for the extra scones, Brandi!
